When you’re deciding on which Medicare Advantage plan to choose for your coverage, the “Best” plan is based on a couple of different factors. All of these are unique to your situation: your health, your prescriptions, how much you travel, and more all come into play. We go into the most important factors to consider when looking for the best Medicare Advantage plan, below.
Medicare Advantage plans have co-pays and co-insurance as you use the plan at your doctor / hospital. So a plan with a $40 co-pay to visit the specialist might not be a deciding factor for someone who only goes to the doctor for their annual check up, but it would make an enormous difference to someone who goes to the physical therapist multiple times per week.
